Kastmaster at the 'Chu

Rate this topic

25 posts in this topic

Because the question is in response to things I read in the 'Chu thread.

 

There were comments and complaints about the quality of Kastmaster hooks, as well as the absence of split rings for a tie-in point. The fatare all treblescory original hooks, in the sizes meant for FW use, are all trebles.

 

Do any Chu regulars replace the trebles with better quality single hooks, or do you just replace the original trebles with a better quality.

I set this up on a rod and reel for the chu and never got there.

Next year I'll have extra time on my hands and I plan on fishing it a lot.

VMC or owner?  These are what I switched to for albies.  They rust but so does everything.

Good question.  And, yes, what hook doesn't rust? It's just a matter of time.

 

Reading a thread like this leaves me with an itch to go foozle with tackle.

Ummm.  'Tis the season when I do baking. I only bake one thing, baklava, but I do it well. I have some special requests for this season; baklava flavored with rum, baklava with chocolate (but is it still then baklava?).  My niece says that if there is any change from my traditional recipe, she'll kill me, so I have trays of that to do too.

 

Tackle play will have to wait a bit.

There was a video scooby did quite a while back on these fresh water hooks.

I don't remember the name of them.

WTH is The Chu?

 

The terminal tackle on the Kastmaster blows.   I replace with a dressed single hook.

I still can't bring myself to use that name.

In the 70s and 80s it was always the Res or the Resie. It is still how I think of it in my head and usually how I say it out loud.

 

I'm not sure where Chu came from. It may be a SOL original. Not sure.
